PRCA Rodeo Performances

The calibre of a rodeo comes down to two things: the skill of the competitors and the quality of the horses, bulls and steers. The Stampede Rodeo features the world’s best competitors and animals. Every afternoon at 1:30 p.m., cowboys and cowgirls face off in a furious display of skill and grit, with every win building towards Showdown Sunday, at the World’s Largest Outdoor Rodeo.


Stampede Rodeo Events

The Calgary Stampede Rodeo is sanctioned by the PRCA. Performances include both judged and timed events. Cowboys and cowgirls compete against one another for the highest score or the shortest time. Top athletes walk away with cash prizes and commemorative belt buckles. Each of the six Pro Rodeo performances includes:

Barrel Racing

This event requires control, attention to detail, and a close partnership between horse and rider. Competing against the clock, contestants circle three barrels in a cloverleaf pattern and race back across the scoreline. Time is measured with an electronic eye timer, and a hundredth of a second can determine who wins. A rider may touch a barrel, but if she knocks one over a five-second penalty is added to her total time.

Bull Riding

In the world-renowned Calgary Stampede bull riding, cowboys engage in a test of nerves against a bull.

A thick braided bullrope, complete with handhold, is wrapped around the bull and weighed down by a cowbell that allows the rope to fall when the ride is over. The rope is only kept tight by the bull rider’s grip.

He must try to keep his arm from straightening and his hand from breaking loose before the end of the ride. The cowboy isn’t required to move his feet—staying on is hard enough—but if he does spur, he gets higher marks.

Tie-Down Roping

In Tie-Down Roping, the cowboy and his equine partner re-create one of ranching’s oldest tasks: roping and tying an animal.

Speed, skill, and finesse are key in this event. The cowboy waits on horseback behind a rope barrier. When he gives a nod, the calf is released and gets a 10-ft. head start.

The cowboy must quickly rope the calf, dismount on the run to reach it, turn it on its side, and tie three of its legs. Time is called when the cowboy throws his hands in the air, and the calf is immediately released.

Steer Wrestling

It’s cowboy vs the clock in this event, which requires coordination and strength. The steer wrestler waits on horseback behind a rope barrier. When he gives a nod, the steer is released and gets a 12-ft. head start. The cowboy chases the steer, then drops from his horse and grabs its horns to bring it to a halt. The steer must be on its feet before being rolled to the ground. Once on its side with all legs extended, the official time is taken. An extra horse, ridden by a hazer, is required to keep the steer running straight.

Saddle Bronc

Rhythm between a cowboy and his horse is key in Saddle Bronc.

The rider moves his feet from the horse’s neck toward the back of the saddle, in time with the bronc’s bucking action. The cowboy holds on to a braided rein that is connected to the horse’s halter, using it to help balance himself. If his hand placement is too low on the rein, he could be pulled over the front; too high, and he may be bucked off the back before his eight seconds are up.


In the Bareback event, the rider holds on to the leather handhold of a rigging—a pad wrapped around the bucking horse’s girth—as he first extends his feet far forward. He then pulls his feet back up toward the rigging in a spurring motion. The higher the spurs, the higher the score.

The stress on the cowboy’s arm is intense as it absorbs most of the horse’s power, but he needs to hold on for at least 8 seconds.

A Guide to Live Music at the 2022 Calgary Stampede

With the Calgary Stampede back in full-swing, there’s something to look forward to for just about everyone, whether you’re a fan of the rides, a rodeo spectator or a lover of live music. If you fall into that last category, then pay attention: this year, the Stampede music lineup features over 100 acts across multiple different venues. After years of very few concerts anywhere, it can feel a little bit overwhelming, but never fear. We have your guide to the live music at the 2022 Calgary Stampede.

The Original Stampede Party Tent

When you envision a classic Stampede lineup, it probably looks a little something like this. The Nashville North tent will feature some of the hottest up-and-coming and established country musicians from Canada and beyond. Grab your boots and prepare to dance the night away with headliners such as Juno winner Meghan Patrick on July 7, the born-and-raised farm boys turned country sensations, The Hunter Brothers on July 11 and Calgary’s own Lindsay Ell on July 14.

Also not to be missed are Tenille Townes, whose songs written from the observer’s perspective have garnered a following of over a million monthly listeners on Spotify, and The Reklaws, a brother-sister duo poised to become country music’s next superstars following viral Tiktok success, three Juno nominations and two platinum singles. All shows are free with the price of admission.

Is That Kevin Costner?

Your eyes don’t deceive you — this Yellowstone star and Stampede Parade Marshal is also the frontman of a country band: Kevin Costner & Modern West. Founded in 2007, Kevin Costner & Modern West have released several chart-topping albums, the most recent of which coincided with Costner’s starring role as John Dutton in TV series Yellowstone and features songs from that character’s perspective. The band will be taking to the Virgin Plus stage at the Big Four Roadhouse on July 8.

Also headlining the venue is Nashville star turned indie-pop sensation Lennon Stella on July 9, ’90s icons Aqua on July 11 and multi-genre six-time Grammy winner T-Pain on July 12. The shows on July 10 require additional tickets, but everything else is free with the cost of admission. 

Not Into Country Music?

Country music not your jam? Not a problem — this year’s Coca-Cola Stage lineup has something for everyone. Carly-Rae Jepson, whose hit song “Call Me Maybe” was the defining ear-bug of 2012, will be performing on July 14, and rising star Alessia Cara, whose songs about self-love and growing up have earned her a Grammy and five Junos, will be taking the stage on July 17. If you’re more interested in the alternative scene, Canadian staples Cold War Kids, Tokyo Police Club, The New Pornographers and Wolf Parade will all be performing on July 14 in what is sure to be an unforgettable night. Alexisonfire will also headline on July 11, following the release of their first full-length album in over 13 years. All shows are free with the cost of admission.

Guess Who’s Back!

After a two-year hiatus, the Cowboy’s Music Festival is making its return for 11 days of dancing, parties, music and fun. Enjoy a beer at the Brett Kissel show on July 7, two-step to Zac Brown Band on July 12 or take in some hip-hop with names such as Ludacris on July 13 and Flo Rida on July 17. For fans of RuPaul’s Drag Race, the Drag Me to Brunch event on July 16 will feature performances from some of the show’s most iconic drag queens. Ticket prices for each event vary and are not included with admission.

But That’s Not All…

Country music is returning to the Saddledome with one of the genre’s biggest names. Blake Shelton will be performing on the Virgin Plus Stampede Concert stage on July 16 in what is the only Canadian stop on his summer tour. Ticket prices start at $59.99 and include the cost of admission to the Calgary Stampede on the day of the show. Dancing and singing along to Blake Shelton is a fitting end to the 2022 Stampede, as one of the biggest events Calgary has seen in years draws to a close.
